True orthodontic emergencies are very rare, but when they do occur we are available to you. As a general rule, you should call your nearest office, Watertown or Woodbury if you experience discomfort that you can’t take care of yourself. We’ll be able to schedule an appointment to resolve the issue.
You might be surprised to learn that you may be able to temporarily solve many problems yourself until you schedule an appointment with our office. When working with your appliances, it is helpful to know the names of the parts of your appliances so you are able to identify what part is broken or out of place. After alleviating your discomfort, it is very important that you still call our office the next business day to schedule a time to repair the issue. Allowing your appliance to remain damaged for an extended period of time may result in disruptions in your treatment plan.
